2018 - New Official Classes for Adults that want to Officiate Girls' Lacrosse

Information for the 2018 Season

The information on this web page is for adults, 18 and older, that are interested in officiating girls' lacrosse in Maine beginning in the 2018 season.  If you are a teen/player, please go to the following link: Junior Official Training


All prospective officials are required to attend a series of classes that are taught by US Lacrosse trained and certified officials.  New official classes will be held in four different locations throughout the state of Maine.  

New official classes at Thornton Academy and Falmouth High School run for three consecutive weeks.  New official classes at Thomas College and Husson University are one four hour class followed by a two hour class at Thomas College run in conjunction with the Maine Lax Festival at Thomas College on Friday, April 6th.  You may mix and match classes to fit into your personal schedule as long as you attend the minimum number of classes.

 
Classes are also an excellent refresher for returning officials. 
  • The cost of the course for new officials is $25 payable at the first class and is non-refundable.  This covers the cost of class materials and a 2018 US Lacrosse Rule Book.  This also covers your 2018 MWLOA dues.
  • All newly trained officials will receive instructions on how to register with US Lacrosse during the last session of their course.  All officials MUST be members of US Lacrosse before officiating a game.  The annual membership dues to US Lacrosse are $55.
